Gov. Cuomo Commits to a Green Plan That Would Make New York State Carbon-free by 2040

Gov. Cuomo Commits to a Green Plan That Would Make New York State Carbon-free by 2040
Yet another U.S. state is on track to implement drastic measures to tackle climate change and negative effects of the carbon emissions on the environment. Andrew Cuomo, New York’s governor, introduced the latest program in the list of progressive and ambitious action plans: his green deal undertakes to completely eliminate carbon from all of the energy the state produces by 2040. Cuomo referred to the deal as the most ambitious and revolutionary in the country. He also directly blamed the White House for the lack of basic understanding of the threat of climate change and vague energy policy.

The Green New Deal is part of Cuomo’s Justice Agenda for 2019. Indeed, it sets new milestones with regards to eliminating the state’s carbon footprint. For example, the deal undertakes to double solar power production by 2025 and quadruple offshore wind infrastructure by 2035. Authors of the new plan point out that a transition to clean energy will deliver a wealth of benefits. Clean energy infrastructure will result in plenty of new jobs which would be in line with the demands of the modern era. Residents of the state will get access to cleaner water and air. And, perhaps most importantly, such an actionable plan will prompt other states and nations to follow in its footsteps.

The green plan allocates some $1.5 billion for clean power projects in wind, solar and power storage segments. There are currently 20 comprehensive projects, which are expected to go fully operational by 2022. These projects will provide power to 550,000 houses and deliver 2,500 jobs and counting.

To embrace carbon neutrality statewide, regulatory bodies, environmental experts and businesses will come together to outline a proper legal framework. The organization will go by the name of the Climate Action Council. New York’s officials express their confidence that steps like these will safeguard the state against the backward environmental policies of President Trump’s office.

The Green New Deal comes in the wake of Trump’s flat denial to address climate change threats. Most recently, he has made no mention of it in his State of the Union address. In the meantime, Democrats-led coalition in New York is advocating for carbon neutrality across the state’s and the U.S.’s economy. Last year, California undertook to go carbon clean by 2045.
